“In 2020 — so a while ago now GM reassigned engineers who worked on the midengine Corvette to an EV team to give the future EVs some of that Corvette sports car appeal and power. So they’ve obviously been thinking about this and working on it for a while. And I remember in 2019, even earlier, I went to a Corvette media event, and something that stood out to me was the level of collaboration between designers and the engineers.”–Hannah Lutz, Automotive News General Motors reporter

“Every place that you see diesel today, you’re going to see a fuel cell electric vehicle in the future. And that speaks to the advantages that generally come about with hydrogen vehicles when you start to talk about longer distances and heavier loads.”–Tom Stephenson, CEO of catalyst manufacturer Pajarito Powder, on how hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will complement battery-electrics

“It’s not a big delay. So, in the grand scheme of things, it’s not a big, big bad news or anything. … [Nissan has] this new product offensive called Nissan A to Z and the A stands for the Ariya all-electric crossover. … And the Z, of course, stands for the Z car. But both the A and the Z have been delayed because of product delays, mostly blamed on things like the COVID pandemic and the global supply chain crunch.”–Hans Greimel, Automotive News Asia editor
